What does everyone waste their money on? I collect Gray tools. A few months ago I got a vintage railway monkey wrench with a wooden handle for $10. Recently I picked up a 5-ton puller from the 1960s for $50, and a set of combination wrenches worth $500 new for $45. No pictures yet, but will update later.

And my latest acquisition, a Falcon Niagara Series pool cue:

From what I have found out, it is a 1998 model made in Mississauga, Ontario. Ivory, ebony, and sapphire inlays. I'm not sure about the value of it yet, but it is almost identical to their current BS-8 cue which is $1176. This series was at the lower-to-mid end in 1998 though, with this model at the top of the series, so the original price tag was likely a bit lower than $1000.

VARY NICE Squishy.

Although, do you really classify that as a tool, or a recreational instrument? :confused:

Found this 5-ton puller on eBay, paid $50 for it. The seller's father was an engine rebuilder and had all these tools that were in great shape; he estimated that this puller was from the 1960s, but it still looks brand new. They are warranted for life so I got a great deal.
